Forum: movies Subject: Possible to disable download links?

Once an item is created, is it possible to disable or remove the downloaad links, but still have the streaming links? The "Edit Item" form has a field which seems to allow that:
"This item should be publically available for download, 0 or 1"
But the form does not allow me to put a value in the field.

I know that technically sophisticated users will still be able to download the mp4 stream files using the streaming links. But for this content, the copyright holder would like to inhibit direct downloads using the download links but still allow the streaming links to function.

I too would like to know if there is a way to keep the streaming audio link enabled, but disable direct downloads.

As of now, if a user right-clicks on the hypertext link to this file, they can select "save target as" which allows the complete download of the file.

Any suggestions for disabling this?
